How to find out repository size?

We got a couple Projects, with quite a few repositories in some case, and there are also private repositories.

How can i find out the size of each?

(As to check if private ones are used reasonably and what projects are eating up my disc space.)

In Bitbucket Cloud, a repository admin can see the size under "Repository Details" under Settings.

In Bitbucket Server too, you can view it under Settings > Repository Details after clicking on "Retrieve Size Details".

Retrieve Size Details, where is this?

If you are in the Repository settings, make sure that you have selected the top/first item for Repository details. Then, you should see Approximate size with Retrieve size details. Just click on Retrieve size details.

Is it possible to get this information via a REST API call?

Is ther still no possibility to get the repo size using the REST API?

I have a small python script that will get you this info here.

`size` is a property of the repository object on the API. Here is an example object from,-workspace,-links,-project

(Note that I've used field exclusion to remove some fields so it's easier to read).

The size is in bytes.

Is there a table or query we can check against the database instead? Just trying to verify if any of our repos are over 2GB for the Cloud migration.
